Thanks for joining the thread.
What is lighting up the trees in your images?
I think that there are lights out of shot at the bottom of the image creating lens flares as CHUD has described.
Similar to these:

Of course not all lens flare is created equal. In some cases I'm sure you can see it through the viewfinder as you state. However, this was a 20 minute time exposure, which by its very nature means that it can amplify something that's not visible without the long time exposure, including a very dim lens flare.

When I have had lens flare in the past it is visible on the lcd screen of the camera and will move about when u move the camera.
Actually your story doesn't seem to be consistent in that regard.
I have seen this happen, and is exactly what you have described. But I saw this thing with my eyes! You can only have my word on that im afraid!
